Psychotherapy and Counselling can, at times, feel like you are on a roller coaster as you come to realise things that may be upsetting. In most cases, having the opportunity to talk and work through these realisations with a therapist can be beneficial. You have the opportunity to understand yourself better and make different decisions or life choices in the future if you wish. In the initial assessment, we will discuss any concerns that you have.

Speaking to someone who won’t judge you, is impartial, and is not involved in the situation can help to make it easier to talk about your thoughts and feelings. Psychotherapy and counselling are also focused on behaviour and thoughts, so the focus does not have to be solely on your feelings.

If you are not ready to fully engage in psychotherapy or counselling, then it is not likely to benefit you. If you are only going to please someone or stop them from suggesting therapy, you could, in fact, end up resenting the sessions. If, however, you are curious, attending an assessment session may help you to make up your mind.

It depends on the medication and quantity. Most medication would not stop therapy being effective, but this will be discussed in the assessment session.

I am trained and have experience of listening to people with a variety of different issues. I do this in a way that gives you the opportunity to talk about whatever is bothering you and explore this without judgement. You can be reassured that what you say is confidential and you will not be asked to discuss or do anything that you don’t want to.

Sometimes it can be easier to talk to a stranger about what’s going on in your life, as it is a safe space and what you say does not leave the session.
